The Off-Shore Pirate [The Offshore Pirate]

Los Angeles: Metro Pictures Corporation, 1921. Collection of six vintage production photographs from the lost 1921 film. Based on the short story "The Offshore Pirate" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, first published in the "Saturday Evening Post" on May 29, 1920.

Actress Viola Dana's second film based on a F. Scott Fitzgerald story (the first being the 1920 film "A Chorus Girl's Romance"), in which she plays a willful society girl who is tricked into falling in love with her uncle's choice for a husband (played by Jack Mulhall) through a complicated ruse in which he masquerades as a pirate.

Also included are two promotional postcards for the film and an inscribed studio still photograph of Viola Dana. Set in largely on board a yacht.

Photos between 7.25 x 9 inches (18 x 23 cm) and 8.25 x 10 inches (21 x 25 cm). One photo has three hole punches to one edge (though not a keybook still) and another has been trimmed on two margins. Photos Very Good plus.
